    Hello from spain, i don't know if the manufacturer took into account heat waves, are there any ways to increase the cooling rate? i dint manage to find anyone advertising better water pumps or higher capacity water pumps(if such thing can be used), everything looks to be just stock

    are there any options? other that slowing down or taking a break


    edit: i know for cars there are racing pumps like https://archive.ph/8gZjM but i dont manage to find anything similar for trucks

    There are options for CAC, and radiators that offer higher cooling capabilities. Not sure of any pumps designed for higher flow.

    Engines are designed for peak performance in the 190* range, so keeping in that range, and having the capability to stay in there on extended hills or extremely hot conditions is huge.

    Not much need to run cooler though.

    There are companies that make radiators with more rows of tubes.
    I thank @ Rideandrepair bought one of those. There are different companies that make custom radiators. I have none to recommend.

    Have your radiator shop add a couple rows to your radiator. Works every time.
